Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

Although this book will obviously appeal to die-hard General Hospital fans (it features two main characters on the show), it is more importantly a fictional account of a relationship between two heterosexual teenagers, one of whom is HIV-positive. Through the entries, General Hospital scriptwriter Pinsker captures the character of Robin Scorpio, a bright, spunky teenager on the brink of adulthood. Like most adolescents, Robin can be mature (i.e., she is devoted to her studies) but at times is irresponsible and deceives adults to get her way. The work chronicles the romantic relationship between Robin and Michael "Stone" Cates, a former street kid. As their relationship progresses, the two become involved sexually. They do not, however, always practice safe sex because Stone had tested negative for HIV after leaving the streetlife. Unfortunately, the test was performed too quickly after he had been exposed to the virus, and he is soon experiencing the typical symptoms of HIV. After Stone's condition is made public, the characters receive support and criticism from all sides. Pinsker does not judge the characters' morality but instead provides a tragic story through which parents can teach children about the dangers of unprotected sex. Recommended for public libraries.

Although based on a storyline from the popular soap opera General Hospital, this is actually a Romeo and Juliet type story teens can relate to. I read this for the first time as a teenager and still love it as an adult. This story looks at how two people on the verge of adulthood have to learn to live when one is HIV + and how that affects everyone in this young man's life, most notably his girlfriend Robin. Robin's courage thoughout is an inspiration.

This is my favorite book. The story covers a major crush, first love, a first time and a tragic death. I am the biggest fan of Robin and Stone around, and each time I read this book I still cry at the end. Robin and Stone will always be in my heart.

I absolutly love this book especially the letters in the back from Stone and Robin's friends and it also tells of the problems you face when you are diagnosed with AIDS and HIV. Anybody who is a avid GH watcher should read this book.

Robin's Diary is one of the best books that I have ever read. It deals with one of the biggest factors that influence our lives today, A.I.D.S. Even though this book is fictional, it could happen to anyone. It will make you laugh, and surely make you cry. If you would like to read a book that could happen to anyone, this is the book to read. I'm sure that once you read this book, it will become one of your favorites

I have this book on my shelf right now! I like it because it has great pictures and it is very descriptive. If you want to remember what Stone and Robin's last time together was like this is the book!! In the back are also the letters that friends had written for Stone's memory book and addresses where to find more information on AIDS.

Robin's Diary brings Robin and Stone's relationship back to life. I was just a baby when Robin and Stone got together and I am now a huge General Hospital fan. Since I always heard Robin and Sonny mention Stone from time to time I was curious. I highly recommend this book to General Hospital fans.

I forgot some of the storylines that were happening around the Robin and Stone arc. This was a great review and still made me cry at the end.
